BPI Account Number Digits
A BPI account number has 10 digits and it is a unique number assigned to your account. It is essential in order to send money, access your bank account, and make transactions.
This is also used to conduct a range of banking activities, such as online banking account and over-the-counter deposits and withdrawals.
When sending money locally using InstaPay or PESONet, or via international wire transfer, the recipient’s BPI account number is also necessary.
In this post, we share some tips for BPI account holders on how to find their account number and then answer some FAQs which users may have regarding their accounts.
Number of Digits in a BPI Account Number
First off, a BPI Account number has 10 digits. However, the total number of digits may be more than 10 depending on the total number of BPI account holders out there. Therefore, if you are asked to provide a 13-digit BPI account number, simply add three zeros (000) at the beginning of your account number (i.e. 0001234567890).
For OLD BPI cards, you could find your (4) 10-digit BPI Account number via the back of the card. But now it’s been updated and the BPI account number is no longer on the card. You have to call BPI to request for it.
UPDATE: For the BPI EMV account, the BPI Account Number can only be found when you contact the call BPI call center, go online to your BPI account or visit a BPI branch and ask for the Account Number directly from the counter. So again the 4 options now to find your BPI account number are:
- Check via ATM Machine (after you enter your card and make a transaction)
- Check your Online BPI Account Banking (if you set up online banking)
- Check your BPI Checkbook/Passbook (if your account has a checkbook)
- Contact the BPI Call Center (and after verifying security information)
- Send an Email to BPI (with your ID for verification)
- Visit any BPI branch (you will need to present a valid ID)
Usually, the more common account number for BPI members is just 10-digits.
